Big Lots.... mom asked me to go out shopping again this past weekend. Did I say no???? Of course not!!! I actually stayed on budget this time!!! We decided to drop in at Big Lots...hadn't been there for a while. It was almost a total bust!!! I went to the aisle where Clarence lives (aka clearance). I found this little beauty. I had been looking for something to put ruffles on. I need ruffles!!! It's just a little satin handbag and I liked it had a zipper on the top....I hate junk falls out!!! I carefully snipped the flower off.......added lace..... re wrapped the flower....and this is what I have!!!!
My flower looks better if I do say so myself!

The back.....couldn't leave it....naked!!!

And guess how much my project was????? Give up???
OK I'll tell you!!!!

Yep, it was $1.00!!!! The lace panel I had, and just some rearranging!!! I just love Clarence.....he's so good to me sometimes!!!!!
